Brick and Mortar Shop!!!!

                  IS GETTING A STORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's the announcement you've been waiting for, and I've been longing to tell you!  It's official!  We're finally getting a front door to call our own!  :)

The Little Shop of Stitches is making its home at 79 South Main Street in Miamisburg!  The owner of the building is busy doing a lot of renovations both to the interior and the exterior.  It will be AMAZING once it is finished!

The building sits right at the corner of Main Street and Linden Avenue in historic downtown Miamisburg.  The building itself dates back to the 1920's and has a tremendous amount of charm.  It reminds me of an old-fashioned general store.  Quaint, comfortable, AWESOME!

I am proud to be "next door" neighbors with some fantastic local businesses -- Giuliano's Italian Restaurant, TJ Chumps, and A Taste of Wine.  Downtown Miamisburg has a lot to offer, and now it's getting a new quilt shop!!!

There is still a lot of work to be done, and I will keep you all updated on the progress of the renovations.  We are tentatively planning to be open for business around Labor Day.  I am humbled by all of the support and good wishes I've received.  I know you are just as excited as I am!  Please help spread the word to all of your fellow stitchers -- The Little Shop of Stitches is on the map!

Happy Stitching!

Her name was Edna.

Edna Lucille Latham Osmon 

Her name was Edna.  And she was my Grandma.

Her bright blue eyes saw so much of the world.  So much of the people she loved.  Both the good and the ugly.

She smiled at the good and said nothing of the ugly.

That was just her way.

Her name was Edna.  And she loved me.

I know this without question.

Always smiling.  She loved to play.  She giggled.  No need to rush, no need to hurry.  There's always time at Grandma's.

She was always there.  Things were always the same.

Her name was Edna.  She was my Grandma.  She loved me.  And I miss her.
